    Thank you saint Matthews

    Bebnd all of the negativity of this forum I just wanted to share a partial success story. I know that the true success story will happen once I get a residency

    I started smu in may 2010 really not knowing how I would fare and only having a 2.5 ug gpa and a 25 mcat backing me up. I. Still remember getting the results after first block and the relief of passing. Thanks to the schools excellent professors and a good environment to study I passed the step with one of the highest if not the highest scores in my class.

    I was placed into clinics about three weeks later and have just finished them up.

    Is this school perfect? Definitely not

    Behind the loan issues which have taken out several a students in front of my eyes and the state issues I would not recommend this school to anyone but as a final resort. I'm already telling people to consider dentistry before medicine lol

    Good luck to all

    HI
    I also applied for Jan 2013 at SMU. Just waiting to hear back from them. Please share any good or bad information you have got so far while making your decision about SMU.

    Hi, Thank you for being helpful here. It would be really nice of you if you tell me what can I read to get ahead of the game. Also does SMU change around rules alot while students are in school, is that true? Thank you

    it is true that policy changes happen sometimes while on the island, sometimes they are detremental since students cant handle the changes. But everything that happened was for the best for students (ie increased passing scores...)

    Get the First aid 2012, and start reading that..prob the best thing to do before you start.

    I am a US representative for the University of Buckingham in UK. I would like to introduce a unique opportunity for the US candidates to study dentistry or medicine in UK. If you are interested in studying dentistry or medicine please email me to discuss the University of Buckingham in greater detail and answer all their questions. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Hey All,

    Just thought i'd post an update, i killed step 2 and have got over 17 interviews across Canada and the USA, do people from other better known schools get more interview calls ? sure, IE: Sgu and others but you need to keep in mind that they are 150,000+ dollars deeper in loan than us,

    In the end I'm thankful that SMU gave me a chance, and i made fire with what was given to me, overall i think that things are getting much harder for FMG's in general and even US-IMG's...but IMO there is still room if one wants to obtain a primary care spot, i.e.: FM peds psych and the rest, gl to all
